|Bio and Links|
I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones. |
Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.
Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.
I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).
I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.
A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.
To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give you your first and last name for the captions?

If you have actually seen her marker there at the cemetery, then we have to accept the fact that she is buried there, or at least probably so. I thought perhaps the wrong St. Joseph Cemetery was chose, as there are many and I know of several in the area of Florida where she lived. Thanks so much. I appreciate your response. Leonard

84,186,213 -- are you sure she is buried in Arkansas? Surely in Florida.
You're welcome. I thought the sun was in a good position yesterday, but not so much. I hope you can get a feel for how big this plot is. When I photographed Martha Cullom's awhile back, I saw the stone that was buried, but I thought it was the base for her fallen stone. The workers have been out and had weed whacked very low to the ground. I realized yesterday that this definitely appears to be a grave stone, and not the base for hers. It is rounded at the top. My grandson and I worked to expose more of it. We were unable to flip it over to check the other side for any inscription.
If I had to guess, I would say this is the marker for William, especially given the proof you have about his burial. I still plan to go by the County Farm to get some pictures for you. I will send those to your email. Have a great Sunday! Pam
I haven't been on here much lately. I just saw you requested the grave photo. I will get that as soon as I can. Sorry to say, I haven't been doing too much with anything because my cat died and it hit me hard. I will be in touch. Thanks, Pam

Glad to help, Sherryl.
Love your bio photo, BTW!
|Marina Dorcy Coffee||Gene Mahaffey|
The location ID for Gene Mahaffey means his ashes were scattered in the Rose Garden (Garden of Remembrance) area of the Los Alisos Section at El Toro Memorial Park. The Garden itself extends along the East edge of the Park. [There is a wall near the Garden area that has small nameplates for some of those whose ashes rest there. My most recent inventory doesn't show a name plate for him, but my list is about 4 months behind.]
I attached a note similar to this one to the Rose Garden photo I posted. You can see it by clicking on the photo.

Thank you for this information, and no, don't remove the link. I was actually just curious about the 2nd marriage that I hadn't previously heard about but, as you say, it sadly didn't last long, so within 2 years, John had lost 2 wives! And it makes sense now that she was buried in another cemetery where she had family buried. I'm pretty sure that Martha Blackwell had been married before as I had found some record of her last name having been McPeters before she married John Jenkins. I'll go ahead and add Clarah to my family tree now, and thank you so much for getting back to me!
